Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Won't suit up against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Rams.

Ansah only participated as a limited participant this week, and he'll miss his fourth game of the season. The 30-year-old has been a regular on the injury report this season, and he'll look to get back on the field in Week 15 against the Panthers. Rasheem Green figures to start at defensive end in Ansah's stead.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Status questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (neck) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah received credit for two limited practices this week in what were actually just walk-throughs for Seattle. The 30-year-old has missed three games while dealing with several different injuries this season but has played in five straight games.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Limited by neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a neck injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Neck injuries can be a worrying development, but the fact Ansah still practiced in some capacity indicates it isn't a serious concern. The 30-year-old may still need to practice fully at some point this week to avoid an injury designation.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Posts 1.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah recorded four tackles (three solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Eagles.

Ansah has struggled to get his pass rush rolling as he's battled injuries. However, with Jadeveon Clowney (hip) inactive, Ansah stepped up with his best performance of the season. Father Time is catching up to the 30-year-old, so his IDP relevancy seems to be a thing of the past.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Not at full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Ansah is "still battling" to return to full strength after his offseason shoulder surgery, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Carroll described Ansah's situation as a "developmental campaign to get him back to full go," noting that the 30-year-old performs best in the 270-pound range but currently weighs in at 258 pounds. Ansah has appeared in six games this season, playing a rotational role, during which he's notched 10 tackles (seven solo), one sack, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. It remains unclear whether the veteran defensive end, who underwent offseason surgery to address a torn labrum, is expected to return to 100 percent health later this season.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Ansah came into the game questionable after participating in just a limied fashion during the week of practice. As evidenced by this news, Ansah will return after a three-game absence and is expected to get the start at defensive end. The duo of Ansah and Jadeveon Clowney has racked up just two sacks this season, so they'll be hoping for better results against a banged-up Atlanta offensive line.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Status uncertain for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against he Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

It's a good sign that Ansah at least participated in a limited fashion during this week of practice, but the veteran defensive end is in danger of missing his fourth game of the season. The Seahawks' one-two punch of Ansah and Jadeveon Clowney hasn't come to fruition the way the team expected this season, as the duo has combined for just two sacks in 10 combined games. If Ansah's unable to go at game time, expect Rasheem Green to make the start at defensive end.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Limited in Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (ankle) was limited during Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Coach Pete Carroll deemed Ansah day-to-day Monday, and Ansah's practice status supports that notion. He played in four straight games coming off a shoulder injury, but Ansah was inactive for this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to an ankle issue. The veteran defensive end likely will carry an injury tag into Week 8's matchup against the Falcons regardless, and Rasheem Green figures to be the main beneficiary while L.J. Collier would have an increased reserve role if Ansah can't go.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll indicated Ansah (ankle) is day-to-day, but that he is unlikely to play in Week 8 against Atlanta unless he can return to practice this week, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Ansah was unable to play in Sunday's loss to the Ravens and is not trending in the right direction at this point. Some combination of L.J. Collier, Rasheem Green, and Branden Jackson figure to fill in for him at defensive end should he ultimately remain sidelined.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Won't play in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against Baltimore, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Ansah came into Sunday as a game-time decision after leaving last week's game against the Browns. Now that he's officially out for Week 7, look for Rasheem Green to see an increased workload.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Game-time decision vs. Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah has an ankle injury and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Ravens, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah sustained the injury during last week's win over the Browns on a fumble recovery and he didn't practice this week. Rasheem Green will likely see increased snaps should Ansah be inactive for Sunday's game.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Gets to QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah recorded five solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals.

After playing just 19 defensive snaps in Week 3 versus the Saints, Ansah saw a major increase in his workload by logging 39 of 63 possible snaps (62 percent) in this contest. He did what he was brought to Seattle to do by taking down Kyler Murray for a 12-yard loss on the final play of the game. Ansah struggled with a back injury leading up to this contest, so it'll be worth monitoring his practice status leading up to Thursday night's game versus the Rams.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Gearing up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (back) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals.

The Seahawks took it easy with Ansah last week as he played 19 of 57 defensive snaps (33 percent), making his season debut after recovering from shoulder surgery. If the team chooses a similar path, it will wipe out most of Ansah's high fantasy ceiling against Kyler Murray, who has been sacked 16 times this year.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (back) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

Ansah followed a non-participation day at practice with a full workload Friday, so he looks to be trending in the right direction. The Seahawks may have just been exercising caution with the 30-year-old in order to ensure he is fully rested. Still confirmation on his status will come closer to kickoff.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Non-participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (back) didn't practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah's non-participation Thursday is somewhat concerning, considering he was only limited in Wednesday's session. Whether the 30-year-old practices Friday -- and, if so, to what capacity -- will paint a better picture with regard to his status for Sunday's matchup Arizona.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Ready for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is set to make his season debut Sunday against the Saints, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Head coach Pete Carroll indicated that Ansah is in good shape and could see a relatively healthy workload right out of the gate. His debut has been widely anticipated by Seahawks' fans, as he will be lining up opposite the recently acquired Jadeveon Clowney at defensive end. The duo are expected to form quite the pass-rushing tandem.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: On track to play versus Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ansah was a full participant in two practices leading up to this past Sunday's game, but he was still ruled out at game time. The Seahawks may have wanted Ansah to absorb enough contact to be ready for a game. With a full week of practice ahead, he's expected to be ready to play Sunday versus the Saints. It'll be a highly anticipated debut, as Ansah averaged a sack per game last year and will now line up opposite Jadeveon Clowney, forming a menacing pass-rushing tandem.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Expected to return Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Saints, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports. "We are counting on him having a big week and getting back," coach Pete Carroll said.

Carroll has teased that Ansah would play ahead of each of the first two games, but Ansah was ultimately an inactive at game time despite being a full participant in two practices last week. The Seahawks were clearly being cautious with their skilled pass rusher, and all signs point to Ansah actually being ready for Week 3's game. Ansah has 16 sacks in his last 21 games, so he's a capable IDP asset. Fantasy owners who have him on their rosters should continue to monitor his practice status this week and double-check that he's active ahead of kickoff Week 3.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Sitting out Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Though Ansah was able to wrap up Week 2 preparations with back-to-back full practices, the Seahawks will err on the side of caution and hold him out for a second straight game while he works his way back from offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum. According to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Ansah is expected to be 100 percent for Seattle's Week 3 matchup with New Orleans.

Seahawks' Ezekiel Ansah: Not in line to play Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network report.

Ansah's Seahawks debut looks like it will be pushed back again, though the expectation is that he'll be 100 percent for the Seahawks' Week 3 matchup with the Saints. With Ansah still on the mend from offseason surgery to address a torn labrum, Rasheem Green and Jadeveon Clowney are expected to serve as Seattle's primary edge rushers versus Pittsburgh.
